Kurtis Blow Hospitalized, Asks Fans For Prayers As He Undergoes Procedure

Kurtis Blow is asking the public for prayers. The 59-year-old singer has been hospitalized, as he has plans to have a procedure done to stabilize one of his arteries.

Kurtis is the first commercially successful rapper and the first to sign with a major record label. “The Breaks”, a single from his 1980 self-titled debut album, is the first certified gold record rap song for Hip Hop.

Making the announcement on social media, he writes:

To all my friends and family. I am in the hospital at UCLA Medical. I am preparing for an aortic artery repair procedure tomorrow morning. The procedure will stabilize the artery from further damage caused by the hematoma I contacted from my recent travels to China. Dr Kwon is an incredible surgeon with hundreds of these procedures under his belt. I trust that God will use him as a tool of success tomorrow.
Please keep me in prayer. I will see you all soon!!!! Encouraged!!! KB
